The Enterprises and Corporations result area is responsible for the Trade Register, financial statements, LEI codes, enterprise mortgages, the Register of Associations, the Register of Foundations, supervision of foundations, and the Register of Religious Communities.

The Patents and Trademarks result area is in charge of patents, utility models and layout-designs of integrated circuits, as well as trademarks and design rights.

The Auditor Oversight Unit approves and oversees auditors.

The Enterprises and Corporations result area monitors organisations for collective management of copyright.

Our result areas work to improve legislation in our branch and prepare statements, regulations and instructions. The Director General is responsible for the PRH’s result, assisted by the Management Group and the Management Working Committee.
